Course Description

There are approximately 10 million stillborn and child, adolescent, or new-born deaths each year. Evidence-based interventions can prevent most of these deaths and related disabilities.

You'll be learning from some of the most respected experts in the field, who have direct experience improving the health and well-being of children, women, and adolescents around the world. You'll be taken on an engaging learning journey that summarises the most recent data, evidence and gaps in research.

This course covers six weeks and examines the entire lifecycle, from birth to adulthood. It also includes a discussion on adolescent health, as well as maternal, newborn, and reproductive health.

Each week will be a focus on a different topic, inviting you to discuss the latest data and current debates in policy, program, and research that can inform actions to improve health outcomes.

We will be reflecting on the importance and value of lifecycle thinking in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 at the end of this course.

The Centre for Maternal, Adolescent, Sexual, and Child Health (MARCH), is the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine's central hub for women and children's healthcare. It includes more than 150 academics from 100 countries, including Afghanistan and Zimbabwe. This course will feature experts from the MARCH Centre in a variety of disciplines such as epidemiology, demography and medicine, as well as public health.

These are some of the contributors:

We will discuss the most recent evidence on how to improve the health and well-being of children, women and adolescents in different countries by using case studies, multimedia content, and discussions with other learners.
